Headlines

LOOPY SMELL

I work in Battle Creek, Michigan, the founding city of the Kellogg empire. Periodically, the smell of the Kellogg factory permeates the air causing the entire city to smell like cereal. Today is such a day. It smells like: Fruit Loops (?) No, burnt Fruit Loops. See "Smells" in the City Pulse section for more details.

WEATHER DRIVES ANNOYED EMPLOYEES TO DESPERATE MEASURES

The ceiling in my office is leaking. So there is a perpetual *drip* *drip* *drip* See "Annoying" on page one of the Weather section for more details.

EXCITING WEEKEND PLANS LEAD TO BAY CITY

Brian and I are going to Bay City this weekend. This is only the second time we've both been in the area since we've been engaged and the first time that we'll be able to go to church (the church at which we'll be getting married). See "Exciting" on the last page of the Entertainment and Food section for more details.

SAM TO LIVE WITH SUCKERS

Sam (my Jack Russell) will be temporarily moving in with my mom and dad because Brian and I will be going to Kansas next weekend for Brooke's wedding. See "Suckers" on the front page of local news.

HEALING POWER OF NEOSPORIN REDISCOVERED IN LIP BALM

My bottom lip is on the mend thanks to Neosporin Lip Treatment. Somehow it got really chapped and raw. But it's feeling better now. See "Heal" on the third page of News in Medicine section for more details.

FAVORITE WRITING UTENSIL RESTORED TO OWNER

I found my favorite pen. It's a promotional pen from the Defense Logistics Agency Training Center and has a fine-point pen on one end and a yellow highlighter on the other. It was at the bottom of my purse and was recovered while I was mining for quarters. See "Joy" on the front page of Lost and Found section for more details.

CAFETERIA CONTINUES TO DISAPPOINT LAZY WORK-FORCE

I didn't pack my lunch again today (for the third day in a row) because I forgot I had to be at work 15 minutes earlier than usual. So, instead of having juicy cherry tomatoes and clam chowder, and Goldfish I had some sandwich they claim to be a "Ranch Chicken Wrap" with "Ruffles" Potato Chips. See "Disappointing" on the front page of Entertainment and Food section for more details.

Thanks for the news update. I must say, I especially liked this post. And I also think that living in Battle Creek would make me hungry for cereal all the time. I love Kelloggs. No lectures please. :D

wow, look at what i've missed. I should check the blogs more often. Crazy.

Looking for a job is horrible. After my many job interviews last year I discovered one thing. I'm probably only going to get a job if someone knows me.

My friend however, has to interview people at his job. (he's my age). So he asked me questions to ask them. He wanted a few off the wall ones just to throw them off. I told him to give them 3 tennis balls and tell them to juggle. Also, I told him to just pose the "yes or no" question. You just ask them yes or no, and see what they say.

In any case......I miss having nothing to do in my life besides blogging.
